Is it possible to open external links in a separate window?
No need for a change to the site.
If you’re on desktop, just press the Ctrl key then click the link. On a mobile device, tap and hold the link, and one of the options should be to open in a new tab.
If this is not a feature in the discourse platform, and I do not think it is, then we can’t fix it.
Thanks Mr Hammer for that lesson in browsers Yep I get that, I know how to do that, but when you expect the site to handle it (as per before) it’s a hard lesson to unlearn I’m fine if it doesn’t let that be tweaked, but if it can be changed in the discourse settings I know I for one would appreciate it.
There is a setting for this.
Done, please try.
not sure it worked - on existing URLs anyway. Test a new link to see if that works better/differently… Nope, confirmed, still behaves the same for me
This is why (it is in your profile)
ha - it’s ME who needs to make a change ! Yup, works for me
Accepting change can be hard as we age.
